- "Beauty is the ray of comprehension and upliftment.
- Not the Beauty of conventionality and deceit,
- which harbors the worm of decadence,
- but that Beauty of the spirit of truth which annihilates all prejudices.
- Beauty alight with the true freedom
- and attainment
- and glorious with the miracle of flowers and of sounds."
